Malaysia’s state oil firm Petronas PETR.UL said on Thursday it had become the first global energy company to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) from two floating production units, following its first cargo delivery from the second floater facility.

The Petronas Floating LNG DUA (PFLNG DUA), sitting off the coast of Sabah on Malaysia’s Borneo island, has a production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per year and operating at the water depth of 1,300 metres, the firm, formerly known as Petroliam Nasional Berhad, said in a statement.

The journey, which started from the Samsung Heavy Industries yard in Korea, will cover 1,840 nautical miles over a course of approximately two-weeks.

Once moored at the Rotan gas field at a water depth of 1,300 meters, the 393-meters long FLNG DUA will start its installation, hook-up, and commissioning.

In November, Petronas held a naming ceremony for its second floating LNG facility, PFLNG Dua, at South Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI). When it is commissioned in 2020 the FLNG will have the capability to liquefy gas extracted from deepwater reservoirs in depths of up to 1,500 m.

The Malaysian energy company calls PFLNG Dua “bigger and better” than 365-m PFLNG Satu, its first FLNG, which achieved its first LNG cargo on 1 April 2017 and which is moored some 180 km offshore Bintulu in Sarawak, Malaysia. PFLNG Dua will have the capability to produce 1.5 mta of LNG, with a storage capacity of 177,000 m3. By comparison, PFLNG Satu has a capacity to produce 1.2 mta of LNG.
